The Standard in Attorney Search and Placement
So I worked with Amanda, and she was great. I had a friend who was looking for a firm at the same time as me and I feel like his recruiter was a little pushy with him and we both had specific goals, and wanted to transition in to a field of law that we are not in right now. I feel like Amanda really listened to me in that respect and didn't try to push me toward any firm regardless of whether or not they had an active practice in the area of law that I would like to start practicing in. While my colleague who was working with a different recruiting firm had a very different experience where he felt like he was being pushed toward every and any firm and his recruiter wasn't really listening to what he wanted. I spoke with Amanda and told her what my goals were and provided her with my resume and transcripts, and she kind of just took it from there. She reached out to the all firms that I said okay to. It was very easy and I didn't really have to do anything. I have worked with one other recruiting company at first, and BCG was much better!
I thought that the regular updates really helped and I'd say that Romina was really consistent with her reaching out in terms of pushing things forward. I thought that helped made it more efficient and I thought it was a good way to keep things up to date and move things forward in terms of getting interviews and screeners and even updating my materials. I would say that BCG is at the top of my list for recruiters and certainly number one.
I found my recruiter (Romina) very personable and easy to talk to, and I thought she gave very good advice in terms of navigating the process. She was very communicative whether it was via telephone or text message. I am not easily reached by telephone so being able to text was really important to me. BCG made my job search easier because they were able to find my next job and get all of the behind the scenes stuff done so to speak, the introductions, I guess.
Lorie was very attentive and very much aware of what I wanted, what I didn't want, she was casting a wide net, but she took into account what I was really looking for so I really appreciated that instead of doing the mass resume thing. I like that she was really responsive and one of the things I really appreciated about working with her is that she was very involved, I had issues like when should I send my notice and so on and she basically guided me through the whole thing and is still guiding me so I really appreciated that about working with her. First of all, BCG allowed me to know about opportunities that I wouldn't have known about otherwise, so that presented more opportunities than I would have found on my own. Second of all, Lorie took care of everything in terms of the resume, cover letter and follow up that meant that I didn't have to do anything but approve or disapprove the jobs and that basically took care of the whole thing. BCG is definitely at the very top of my list of recruiters.
I don't have experience working with any other search firms, but Jennifer was just really available to talk, she was helpful and it was a positive experience. I felt comfortable talking to her about any concerns I had and she was very responsive whenever I had questions. I basically didn't even have to do anything in my search.
This was my first time working with a recruiter and Christina was more than I could have hoped for. She was amazing. She took the time to get to know me and what my goals were and what me and my family wanted for my legal career and she tailored her search for firms to meet those needs and she was interested and engaging and responsive, very very very responsive to inquiries I had or emails I sent, really quick turnaround time throughout the interview process called and asked how the interviews went and took an interest in all of that, I couldn't have asked for a better experience with Christina. BCG was awesome too. I really enjoyed the websites interface in particular how it identified the firms I had applied to and kept a status update as to if they were under consideration, pass or interview, so very positive experience all around. [Working with BCG] made it easier in every sense of the word. Number 1, BCG did all of the leg work really, they did the applications, Cristina more or less prepared my cover letter. I wouldn't have had the time in my day to do this. We applied to 25 or 30 firms and that would have taken me alone, several days to do. Cristina also helped me select my writing sample that I was going to use and reviewed my resume so all of that made my job search easier. I would recommend anybody that was looking for a job in the legal profession to use BCG based on my experience. I haven't used other recruiters but my experience was just so good that I would send anybody that cared to ask me, BCG's way.There was one other recruiter that I had reached out to prior to BCG but they actually had told me that they couldn't work with me because I hadn't received my Califormia bar results yet and to come back in 3 months. I was a bit dejected by that call and then Christina said let's get going and I ended up getting a job before bar results even came out. It was something the other recruiter dropped the ball on and BCG clearly didn't.
Karen was very responsive and had great information and really listened to what I was looking for. My job search was made much easier and it went really fast, about 3 weeks and I was placed.
I really appreciated Jessica's responsiveness and how quickly she got me interviews and that I was able to get a job very quickly. She was easy to communicate with and was always available. The responsiveness of a recruiter makes a big difference. Other recruiters are slow to get back with you or take forever to provide new law firms so working with BCG made it very quick. I have only worked with one other recruiting company and you guys are certainly better than them.
I really appreciated the resources that [Lorie and BCG] provided through literature and thought it was extremely helpful during my job search. [Lorie] also gave me another voice to bounce ideas off of, kind of an objective 3rd party in a way. I have never worked with any other recruiters but my experience with [Lorie and BCG] was great.
I thought that the two [recruiters] I worked with were both very helpful and knowledgeable, both in terms of our phone conversations and [the fact that] they also sent me good prep material. Pretty much all aspects of [working with BCG made my job searched easier and] helped with identifying opportunities that I wouldn't have otherwise. They worked [with me on] interview prep. The whole experience was very positive. I've only ever worked with one other company closely, [but] I was very happy with the whole experience [of working with BCG]. [The] recruiters were very knowledgeable. I even saw some interview [prep materials] and thought that was very well done. So I was very impressed and happy the whole time.
[My favorite things about working with BCG were] the regular weekly updates and information. Other people, you contact them and you don't hear back from them for weeks. [BCG] basically went out and found the opportunities for me, in every way, rather than me going out and having to do all the work. [BCG was] helpful. You're the only ones that got me an opportunity, so [I would rank you] first [compared to other recruiters]. [I would describe BCG as] useful, helpful, [and] a company that helped me find what I needed and what I was looking for.
[My favorite thing about BCG was] the communication, with everyone working together across markets and communicating with me as well...I mainly worked with Christina and she was very on top of everything. She was also very helpful and knowledgeable with interviews and knowing the process, so she helped me a lot with that...it was very responsive [and] took a lot of the time off my hands. Communicating with the firms and also handling some of the awkward conversation situations, being that middle person really helped [made my job search easier]. [The words that come to mind when I think of BCG are] friendly, professional, and top tier. I've worked with several recruiters and overall BCG was just much better. Based on the recruiting companies that I worked with I would say [you are] number one. And I've worked with someone at Parker Lynch, Wegman, and then a couple of other solo people. Each for different reasons, I think BCG was the best. [BCG] was very friendly and knowledgeable and responsive. They have good connections to the firms and a good brand for getting you out there and working for different firms to get you where you want to be.
[Working with BCG] was very easy. I worked with Lorie because I had responded to some listings online and she got right in touch with me. She did a lot of the work and just kept me in the loop. It was very helpful. I felt confident that she was looking at listings that I probably didn't have access to...when I accepted an offer it did make me confident that I was accepting a good offer. I felt confident that I wasn't leaving anything on the table that I would have found otherwise. That gave me some confidence too. I would say [BCG is] helpful. I guess the second word I would think of is quick because it really wasn't long after I got in touch with Lorie that I ended up with an interview and then an offer. So that was great. As far as a third one, I guess efficient. I never actually met Lorie in person, we talked on the phone [and] we emailed. But I really didn't have to put a whole lot of time into the relationship. I had a positive experience working with you all, I ended up with a result that I'm very pleased with and I didn't really have to do a lot to maintain that relationship. Lorie really drove that process. Bottom line: I would say to somebody there really is nothing to lose contacting you all. If I was going to do any one thing differently, to me I would have been a little better off if I had known to stay in touch with Lorie a little bit more. Once I was contacted to do a phone interview...after the phone interview I came down to San Diego for an in person interview. It was really only after I had received an offer that I then got back in touch with Lorie. I think I might have been a little better off if I had stayed in touch with her more. Like [telling her] I have a phone interview coming up [and] we should confer...I think I would have been a little better off if I had more information going into those. I just didn't understand that it would have been important to keep in touch. Just because it was going so efficiently and it was run well, kind of remotely, so I thought it was just kind of on autopilot. That is the one [piece of] advice I would give to other people in my position.
I would say Becca's responsiveness and thoroughness with explanations providing as much contact as possible [was my favorite part of working with BCG]. I just left it in her hands. The only thing that I needed to do was to do great interviews. Other than that she managed all of it. [BCG is] very knowledgeable, [has] expertise, [and] you've got great staff in terms of their expertise as well as experience in the field. Also, I would just add that [I liked] the responsiveness and I liked the reporting thing that you do on a weekly basis. [BCG has] all the tools in place to make sure that the candidate has an up to date picture of what their candidacy looks like. [You are] by far the best and I have worked with lots. I would definitely recommend you guys. I would describe the company as thorough [and] knowledgeable. You know the field [and] have lots of information and resources that are available to candidates.
The communication was reasonably good and timely. I thought the woman I worked with was very professional and she was good at communicating in terms of following up in a reasonable amount of time. It worked and I'm here, so I am very happy as a result.
[BCG Attorney Search] responded to my correspondence very quickly. They seemed to be more proactive than everybody else I have worked with. I guess those are the two things that probably jump out at me. I felt like because you were so proactive I didn't have to be simultaneously looking. If a job hit the market [I trust that] you guys would find it. [BCG Attorney Search is] proactive, helpful, and timely. The best [legal recruiter] I've worked with. [You are] a great recruiting firm that actually seems interested in helping me find a job and not just fill[ing] a current vacancy.
[BCG was] very professional. [You were] very insightful as far as preparing for interviews, [as] I got a lot of background information about the firms I was interviewing with. [You] placed me really quickly. I liked that. The person I was working with, Nadeen, was really helpful throughout the process. [You] made it a lot easier [and] basically took over my entire job search. I wasn't doing much else myself, other than my resume; I kind of relied on BCG. [You are] very professional. You guys [are] number one. You guys do really good work. You are professional, as I have stated a couple times, and easy to work with. You guys did a really good job.
[The] status update was helpful to have, and you were pretty accessible over the phone. Carleen was really easy to work with which was great. You guys did most of it [my job search] for me so that was helpful. [I also] like[d] the constant updates with firms and not having to look too much at positions. I would describe you guys as provid[ing] a pretty broad search for us ... you guys are connected with a lot of different firms.
The recruiter I worked with was responsive. [The first three words that come to mind when I think of BCG are] attorney search and good. [I would] recommend [BCG to others].
BCG was super responsive and had great leads. I was kind of working on my own for a while, trying to find a few things. After working with BCG the number of firms and opportunities I had to get an in to the interview process was much [higher and] quicker. I enjoyed it quite a bit. BCG is highly professional. So far you are the best [recruiting firm] I've worked with. I would definitely recommend [you].
